Bogut was involved in the Nerlens Noel-to-Dallas trade last week, but likely won’t suit up for the Sixers. The Australian native is also being targeted by the Rockets and Spurs:

Bogut has played in back-to-back Finals as part of the Warriors, but was not resigned by the Dubs in the offseason since the team needed the cap room to sign Kevin Durant. The center has been sidelined with a knee injury for most of the season and has appeared in just 26 games. He is averaging 3 points, 8.3 boards and 1 block per game. The Cavs are also expected to sign point guard Deron Williams at the top of the week.
